Where can I start? The staff were the most UN-friendly staff I have had the mis-fortune to meet. When writing arrived we were greeted by the keys being thrust into our hands, there was no hello or any other greeting. No attempt was made to show us to our rooms. In the morning I went down for breakfast , the staff looked shocked that I asked for an English breakfast I was then told that I would have to pay extra for
The privilege of eating this cold partly cooked breakfast.also after buying some soft drinks to take to my room I was rudely told that no drink or food not purchased from the hotel's allowed to be taken to the rooms, this includes water. In conclusion I wish I could rate this hotel st worst than poor but unfortunately I can't

There is another ali-baba hotel and i think the person who said bad things about the hotel as got his wires crossed. I visit Ali-baba everytime i go to Marmaris (2x a year) and spend my days there by or in the pool and love the food, they will go out there way to cook or prep any food you want, even if its not on the menu and the prices are so cheap, i just dont know how they make a profit. If u want to relax away from the constant "english all day breakfasts" then give them a try, u wont regret it.......

Room Tip: just ask reception and they will go out there way to help

Upon arrival our hotel room had dirty towels, the bathroom floor and shower was covered in muddy footprints, the bed sheets wern't clean and the air con wasn't working. We had to pay extra for air con which was very noisy, we had no fridge in our room and no safety box. The doors to the rooms didn't lock properly which left us feeling wary about leaving things in the hotel. The staff were very rude and in welcoming. When we we checked out of the hotel they tried to make me and my friends pay a "fine" because we had apparently "overused" our air con in our room!? What kind of 'hotel' is this !? Honestly wouldn't recommend this hotel to a rat I would of rather payed extra to stay somewhere nicer and regret ever booking this hotel. The outside pool is about as big as a double bed and the breakfast they served was like eating sewage. We spent very little time in the hotel and spent all our holiday on the beach and eating out. NEVER EVER EVER STAY HERE

Well when we arrived in Marmaris we wasn't going to stop in Ali Baba hotel but we got moved from a different hotel called Star hotel because we were unhappy. But after getting moved to Ali Baba we could finally relax and start our holiday and have a good family holiday. Ali Babe hotel is a lovely hotel with great staff. The rooms are a good size but maybe the balcony could of been a bit bigger. It was a very clean and safe hotel rooms were cleaned every day without fail. The swimming pool was a nice way too cool off because the weather was scorching. We didnt know the name of the bar man so we called him bob he was such a sound and gets involved with the kids he has a laugh and even gets in the pool. I WOULD DEFFO RECOMMEND THIS HOTEL IF YOU WANT THE BEST TURKEY HOLIDAY.

Room Tip: Well to be 100% honest any room in Ali Baba hotel is fab.

Ive been to this hotel many times and its always clean. The bar-man also known as william is called Bulent and we have become good friends & go out to nightclubs and bars together.The Ali-baba is a jewl & is located near to the beach/shops/clubs & is just around the corner from the market. I dont know how anyone can complain, they only get paid £3 per night from the tour opperators. The staff are constantly cleaning and every morning when we are still asleep they clean the whole of the outside area including the pool.

Room Tip: rooms available on request on ground floor.
